A History of BRA Cricket.

In 2017, to mark the 50th anniversary of the 1967 BRA 1st XI which included six Irish Schools players, three of whom became full internationals, the Old Boys invited a number of distinguished former players to attend a team reunion at the school followed by the annual Old Boys  v The School match at the Castle Grounds. 

Those who attended were interviewed about their cricketing memories and a video of those conversations and portions of the team reunion appears elsewhere on this Old Boys’ website.
